A Quote by Raphie on mathematics, mind, heart, art, and creation

Mathematics is to the mind what the heart is to art. Without the latter there is no need for the former, but the former is the ladder to the latter. When the latter and the ladder come together, the former is the maker and the maker is the man... and the woman.

Both in equal parts.

A Quote by Raphie

Artists are like canaries in a cave who sing the sweetest and feel the pain first. And, as with canaries, we far too often hear their tune only once the music stops.

A Quote by Raphie on johnny appleseed hope light future stars

He Johnny Appleseeded through life a thousand hop-scotched points of light and hope at a time, reconnecting with lost lights left behind and helter-skeltering toward all those new wide-eyed points of  light far ahead. He knew it was the only way back to the future we once had and needed to find again.

A Quote by Raphie on world trade center, wtc, windows on the world, wedding, flowers, roses, statue of liberty, loss, death, spirit, and september 11

I can still see the amber sunset and the Statue of Liberty through the newly-wedded paned-glass of Windows on the World that Sunday evening three weeks before the Towers fell. We left the wedding dozens of roses in hand the bride and groom needed not there was such a surfeit. That view I experienced is a sight that now exists for birds alone and, perchance, a lingering spirit or two; or, if the fates be cruel, a whispered echo of that golden-haired bartender's gorgeous smile.

A Quote by Raphie on george orwell, marie antoinette, patriotism, opportunity, bearing arms, nero, rome, and first amendment

He was armed with nought but a fiery pen and the passion of his conviction that we , ALL OF US, can be better than to blindly and silently stand by as this country, this country that he loved, incrementalized itself moment by moment toward George Orwell's State of perpetual War, Nero's Rome and Marie Antoinette's Paris.

A Quote by Raphie on media concentration, threat, liberation, spirit, water, and pipes

We are in an age of media consolidation and concentration and, yes, threatened, but also liberated information flow; and since flow of information is to spirit what water is to life, we'd best think about how to keep the pipes free and unclogged.
